Presentation:  Robustness Thinking in Product Development

Click this Link to presentation slides

Summary: Will customers always use our products under optimal conditions?

Will our products always be manufactured under optimal conditions?

The answer to these two questions is no.

The challenge is simply that variation exists everywhere and inherent in all products and processes. Products and or processes which are sensitive to the effects of variation are significant contributors to quality, reliability and ultimately customer dissatisfaction. How can we make our product and or process insensitive to the variation? In this seminar, we will introduce robustness thinking about “how product or process can be designed to insensitive to variation and uncertainty” to explore the synergy between robust engineering and other quality improvement methods.


Most of reliability problems are related to variation and uncertainty. Thus, to design for reliability, the variation and uncertainty need to be addressed directly, rather than indirectly utilizing failure rates based on field, which are often of questionable quality.

The major focus of this presentation is to achieve reliability improvement through robust design. It does so by factoring reliability into the development of the design itself by designing for target reliability. The result of this approach avoids costly over-design and or dangerous under-design. Recognizing how variation in the environment (e.g., energy source, raw materials, heat, humidity, shock, vibration, dirt and dust) and system internal wear out, deterioration degrade reliability, robust design offers an exciting and effective way to build quality and reliability into products and services versus testing to inspect quality to assure reliability.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE


Mr. Graham has a wide variety of engineering and business experience.  He is knowledgeable in both the technical and people-oriented aspects of implementing and managing quality systems.


In 1989, Mr. Graham implemented one of the first ISO9000 quality systems in North America. Since then he and the members of Frontline Resources, Inc. have guided many companies through the ISO9000 implementation process and other standards built on the ISO9000 platform (ISO14000, 18000, etc.).  He also assists companies already certified with system upgrades, internal auditing, and training.  He has served as a consultant and trainer for distribution, engineering, electronics, metal fabrication, petrochemical, and service companies.


Mr. Graham is an Exemplar Global Principal Auditor and has implemented numerous ISO9001 Quality Systems over the last 23 years. 


John is the author of ‘The Magic of ISO 9000,” recently published by ASQ Publications.
